Grossman...yay or nay?

Well how do you guys feel about Rex? Can he be everything the Bears need right now as well as next year? Can he develop into the quarterback everyone hopes of him?

I see him as a weak-armed QB in Chicago, not exactly the cradle of QB develpment. Don't like the odds on him being anything more than mediocre.

what??? grossman YAY - that first 60 yder to booker was perfect - hit him in stride, let him get yards after the catch. grossman is also pretty mobile, and hard to sack because he always throws it away. his only pick was kinda his fault, but it was also windy. controls the game well, throws really accurately, there were a few drops but he still managed 19/32. i am so excited for next year i can't wait. he gives a whole new dimension to this offense. they finally managed 400 yards of offense, which is amazing for the bears. i'd pick him up, at least on the bench, for next year. the bears will surprise.

After watching parts of the last two games I'm pretty optimistic that Grossman will be a good one. The offense has looked much more dangerous (albeit against two average defenses). From a fantasy standpoint, I'd say Grossman is worth taking in the later rounds next year as a backup QB. Also it makes some of the other Bears (Booker, Gage, Edinger, etc.) worth a little more consideration for next year, since there's a chance that they may have something resembling a passing attack for the first time in the last decade or so.

Hey, Grossman is 2-0 as the starter for Chicago. I think he will do great next year.

Stewart, who cares. Judging by my avatar, you can tell I've pretty much had it with Stewart. He needs to disappear on the Pine.

He does not have a week arm at all. He is not very mobile, but he can fling it.

I agree that the Bears staff is not very good at developing talent - or identifying it even - but so far Rex looks like the real thing. He controls the tempo of the game well, spreads the ball around, doesn't take sacks, knows when to throw the ball away - all things that the more experienced and mobile Kordell can't seem to do.

Sit Slash, cut Chris "I'm Batman" Chandler, and let Rex play.

Havnt the Bears employed a QB coach for only the 3rd time in history to help Grossman advance?

I am a huge Grossman fan and will be hoping to pick him up very late in next years draft. He is worth the risk. The Bears have a ton of potential but are just not realizing it. I think they will have a good season next year.
